I Only Have Myself To Blame.

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

I have totally and completely jinxed myself. Remember last week when I said, "It's only  matter of time before this kid is climbing the walls?" Well, that time has come. Really, I'm the one who said it out loud, I only have myself to blame. 

Here we were this morning, making breakfast. The little man was "helping" me buy taking all of the ingredients out of the fridge (and more than a few we didn't need.) 

Thank you I said, what a good boy. And then this happened.......



The fourth shot in this series is actually missing because that would have been the one where he was standing completely on the lower bar and I was faced with the tough decision to get the shot or save my little man. Social Services would probably agree that I made the right choice. Once he was safely on the ground you can see that he was pretty proud of himself. 


Um, he's not even two yet and he is already climbing the walls? I see quite a few broken bones in this kid's future...

awww he's like a cute little monkey!! Just make sure he's not grabbing a beer from the fridge and you are fine in my book! :)

Haha! He's awesome, too cute! My kids do the SAME thing, constantly. Our fridge is just side by side, no bottom drawer. They hang from it looking right at me knowing they are not supposed to be doing it. Daily cleaning little hand and toe prints. Little monkeys!

Thankfully, kids are made of rubber. With a 1.5 yr old and 3.5 yr old, we've weathered falls on concrete floor, out of the crib, down flight of stairs (on head), & one tumble off a horse. But it does make you jumpy. I dread the first ER trip but we've been able to stave it off.

It's sad when a not-yet-2-year-old has more upper body strength than I do...

LOL Erin! I thought the exact same thing when he was doing it. I justified it by thinking that since his legs are so little they can't weigh that much, and maybe because he is so young his bones weigh less? Works for me!

Awww, he's sooooo cute! Like a little monkey. My smallest daughter used to climb up EVERYTHING when she was LM's age. I once found her on top of my desk, trying to scale the bookshelf above. She doesn't do it now though. :-)
